    Have there gaiters, very impressed. Better than most others (and at a way better price as well) in my opinion. Just waiting for Bushbuck to come out with a pant for winter!

    i reckon.

    I was looking for a a more sleek jacket, hate the big pockets on the sides of jackets. Bushbuck is a bit thicker, and ireckon it would get quite heavy but havent used one so cant comment.

    The stoney creek doesnt seem to suck up the water like the Swazi anorak or ridgeline type jackets that have that more velvety/soft fabric.

    The stoney creek is made of some different feeling stuff, its a bit more noisy pushing through scrub but no jacket is quite so not to much of a big deal

    I rate the bushbuck jacket highly. Well designed and well cut with lots of good pockets
